Hello Friends,

I have couple of questions for the IBM certification-665
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/45000101.shtml

(a) In the above website's REQUIREMENT section, they are saying "This certification requires 1 test(s).". What does that mean ?

(b) Is there any prerequisites (certification) for the 665 SOA certification?

(c) Are the courses given in the IBM website for the SW717, SW718 and SW719 sufficient to clear the above certification?

I appreciate for you help.

Thanks
Pooja

Hi Pooja,

I was about to start preparing for IBM 665 this month. When I read this below note

" Note: This certification will be withdrawn December 31, 2007.
A replacement certification will be available November 1, 2007.
"

I decided to wait for IBM 667 which is the successor of IBM 665.

As such I don't think there are any pre-requisites for IBM 665.

Let's hope IBM 667 will be a better one

Yahoo group called 'ibmsoacert' has all the required materials including sample questions. You can join the group and download them...

As far as preparation process is concerned, i would suggest you to start with reading "SOA for dummies" book (i happened to see the soft-copy of it [ and don't have any trepidations using copyrighted material illegally ]) that sets the foundation. Then you go through the course materials 717, 718 and 719 (All these materials are available and downloadable from the group). Then you can take up a assessment test with the prometrics (online) worth 10$. That clearly tells you the improvement area. Accordingly, you have to go through the articles available in the ibm site itself and read. Then you can take-up the real test.

Note:
- IBM is replacing the 665 with 667. 665 is available till 31-Dec-07. 667 is available from 1-Nov-07. I would suggest to wait for the commencement of 667.
- If you take-up the assessment test before 30-Oct-07, you get 50% off on the price of the real test (you have to take-up the real test before 30-Nov-07 for getting this offer)

All these information is available in the IBM test site itself. Hope this helps.

Good luck.

According to link you have provided, if I pass assesment test in between
Nov. 19 - 30, 2007. I will get 50% off?

What if I take the test before that?
